Diego may move on to boost Brazil hopes
Wolfsburg midfielder Diego could leave the club as he wants to secure his place in the Brazil squad, according to reports in Germany.
Diego, 27, is contracted to Wolfsburg until 2014 and the club’s general manager, Klaus Allofs, recently indicated that the club would be interested in prolonging the midfielder’s stay.
However, Diego - who spent last season on loan with Atletico Madrid - is eager to secure a return to the Brazilian national side ahead of the 2014 World Cup on home soil and has suggested his chances would increase were he playing elsewhere.
“Two of my friends from Atletico [Filipe Luis and Miranda] have been called up,” Diego, who made the last of his 33 appearances for the Selecao back in 2008, said. “It will always remain my goal to get back into the team. I have not lost sight of the World Cup.
“Of course it is helpful to play at the top level with your club. People automatically talk more about you.”
Wolfsburg currently sit 13th in the Bundesliga and are seven points away from the Europa League spots.
Earlier this season, then Wolfsburg boss Felix Magath had told Diego he was free to leave the club, but the player stayed on and has been able to make an impact since Magath's departure.
